Touted as one of the "Top 10 Outdoor Museums in the World", by the British Museum, the Rural Life Museum, in Baton Rouge, LA will transport Frugal Family Travelers, like yours back in time to life in 19th century Louisiana. The museum is run by Louisiana State University and features both an indoor area called the "exhibition barn", featuring artifacts from 20th century rural life, as well as outdoor exhibits, featuring authentic pioneer cabins, churches, Acadian buildings, etc., all in a rural landscape. Our Frugal Family Travelers LOVED exploring this vast property with exhibits and trails. They especially loved seeing the old cars and carriages in the indoor museum! Admission is $9 (ages 12-61), $8 (ages 5-11, 62+), and free (under age 5).
September 27-28th, 2014 | Harvest Days are two special days at the museum. These two very special days will feature living history demonstrations which interpret activities that took place on
farms and plantations during harvest time in the 1800’s. Activities include; cooking, soap making, wood working, and many hands on activities in which the general public can participate. Wagon rides and other activities are included. General admission charged. Louisiana
